Unfiltered at UTSG: Preserving Memory in Colonized Societies
Unfiltered Truth Talks is a drop-in program that allows students to openly discuss issues relating to race, racism, anti-racism and the intersections among other identities (such as faith, gender, sexuality, and others). We will be hosting this dialogue with the help of the Centre for Women and Trans People.
This discussion will unpack how we use collective memory to preserve our beliefs, culture and history in times and conditions of colonialism. In the context of Canada's 150th Anniversary on stolen land we would like to discuss how culture is preserved on this land and on other settler colonial lands worldwide. We will attempt to answer questions of how to pass on memory in a society that has continually erased histories of colonial oppression. We will explore how colonial mindsets impact us on campus and how we can work to preserve the history in a just way.
Please join us as we navigate these issues and questions.
